I thank all participants who come here "to the plate" when and where it counts, especially those who have established a reputation of being knowledgeable in eyesign. Thank you.
Some of our colleagues may be able to successfully pick the best birds out of a basket and may therefore be
gifted with some special talent. My question and the question of many skeptics is whether accomplished eye sign enthusiasts use only the bird's eye sign to judge the bird's value for racing or
breeding or whether other cues may be used. To eliminate any other possible cues, only pictures of the birds' eyes are supplied and it is my hope that many eye sign enthusiasts will try their hand at
the following game:
Below you will find thumbnails of 40 eyes chosen at random from the 2001 Alberta Classic entries. (Clicking on any thumbnail will enlarge it for you)
All images were taken under identical conditions and received identical processing!
Quite unlike the February 2001 game, these birds will be treated in an identical fashion and flown from the same loft. The birds represented by these 40 eyes will place somewhere in the final results. It will be your
challenge, should you accept it, to select the top 20 birds in this group of 40.
Please write down your selection on a piece of paper and then go to the next page where you can enter your selection.
You would be expected to be correct in 50% by chance alone. Anything better than 60% would be significant and would show that you can use eye pictures to
select for young bird flying ability.
The band number will be added to each eye after the games are closed and you will be able to judge yourself of how well you did after the race season.
We are sorry but this game is now closed
Please refer to the race results page to perhaps find some characteristics common to the poorer performers or characteristics common to the shining stars of the year 2001.
